The White House has made a dangerous request for additional unrestricted funding to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which includes the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The nearly one-billion-dollar-ask, would increase faulty detention practices and surveillance operations that have harmed thousands of migrants.
As people of faith, we are called to honor the God-given dignity of every person. Migration is foundational to our faith – from Jesus’ migration to his family’s exodus, our faith compels us to welcome migrants seeking safety from violence, climate change, and extreme poverty.
Join us by calling your Senators and Representative and urging them to reject the White House request for additional unrestricted funding for immigration enforcement!
